Continuous glucose monitoring improves glycemic control in patients with type 1 diabetes

Posted by on Jul 15, 2017 in Diabetes mellitus | 0 comments

In a nutshell This study investigated the effect of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM) in managing blood sugar levels in patients with type 1 diabetes treated with multiple daily insulin injections. They found CGM resulted in a clinically meaningful improvement in glycemic (blood sugar) control. Some background Glycemic control is critical for...

Continuous glucose monitoring in patients with impaired awareness of hypoglycemia

Posted by on Oct 5, 2016 in Diabetes mellitus | 0 comments

In a nutshell The authors aimed to determine whether continuous glucose monitoring improved glycemia (glucose present in the blood) and prevented severe hypoglycemia events (dangerously low blood sugar levels) compared to self-monitoring of blood sugar levels in patients with impaired awareness of hypoglycemia. The authors concluded that continuous...

Do different meals affect glucose levels in people using an artificial pancreas?

Posted by on Jul 3, 2018 in Diabetes mellitus | 0 comments

In a nutshell This study examined the effects of adding protein and/or fat to a meal with a standard amount of carbohydrates, in adults with type 1 diabetes (T1D) using an artificial pancreas (AP). It was determined adding protein and/or fat did not affect glucose levels over time, but did influence the timing of spikes in glucose levels, and...

Can the artificial pancreas improve control of glucose levels without increasing insulin doses?

Posted by on Aug 27, 2017 in Diabetes mellitus | 0 comments

In a nutshell This study investigated the effectiveness and safety of the artificial pancreas (APs) in people with type 1 diabetes (T1D). It was determined that APs improve control of glucose levels, without increasing the insulin dose.  Some background A traditional insulin pump is a small device that continuously delivers insulin, without...

Artificial pancreas effective in regulating glucose in patients with well-controlled type 1 diabetes

Posted by on Jan 30, 2017 in Diabetes mellitus | 0 comments

In a nutshell This study compared a new method of insulin delivery, a hybrid closed-loop system, with standard insulin pumps in patients with type 1 diabetes (T1D). It was found that the time spent at the desired glucose concentration was improved with the closed-loop system. Some background A traditional insulin pump is a small device that...

An artificial pancreas for glucose control

Posted by on May 29, 2016 in Diabetes mellitus | 0 comments

In a nutshell This study examined the safety of an artificial pancreas system. The current study concluded that the artificial pancreas system is safe and also provides better blood sugar control than insulin pump therapy. Some background Achieving normal blood sugar levels can be challenging for patients. An artificial pancreas system has been...
